### Where did I say there is no prejudice against blacks in the US?
BTW, I agree that a part of the problem in the US banking system were
crooks - but concentrating on them is missing the point. In a way,
Bill, you are like the touchingly naive Russians sending worshipful
letters to Stalin asking to redress grievances against corrupt
officials. The problem is not the crook who absconds with a few
million dollars but the long-feedback centralized system (i.e.
government banking regulators) which allows the crook to cook the
books (or just be stupid) long enough for major problems to
accumulate, eventually leading to a more dramatic explosion.
